We are so in love with Matt and Rob’s romantic Carondelet House wedding! With the help of Galas by Gerry, their wedding day was transformed into a warm and intimate occasion to celebrate their nuptials. There are elegant elements and subtle rustic charm that truly tie the entire vibe and ambiance together. Making it a day to remember, White Fig Designs crafted the most gorgeous floral arrangements – just look at that ceremony set up! There are so many swoon-worthy details and Krista Ashley photographed all of it perfectly.

Our floral designer, Erin from White Fig Designs was the best – we met with her several times to go over ideas and gave her the challenge of wanting something “Old Hollywood” yet “Rustic” along with sophisticated but also simple and masculine and she completely blew us away. The overall effect of her designs were even better than we could have imagined.
The most memorable part of the day was definitely the ceremony, our friend Gerry did an amazing job officiating and made the ceremony itself so personal, sweet and fun. Standing in the beautifully decorated room at sunset, surrounded by our beloved family and friends as we made our vows was a moment we didn’t think we would ever have, and one we will cherish for our entire lives.
Our wedding advice is to go with a wedding planner, it’s totally worth it for all of the details (and snags) that you never knew existed. Also, it REALLY helps to have a best friend who is a wedding planner. But really, we would just say to that it’s one of (if not) the best days of your lives, so don’t worry about what the new trends or “must haves” are, make it your own and have fun.

Galas by Gerry did an exceptional job of making our vision a reality and was so easy (and fun) to work with, she anticipated every single thing that (could have) popped up and had a plan. Everything from start to finish was perfect.
We chose the Carondelet House venue because its really unique, with an Old Hollywood feel and while incredibly stunning, it still felt intimate and warm.
We wanted the overall vibe to represent us and our lives in LA. The venue is reminiscent of Old Hollywood, so we paired it with rustic, woodsy accents to give it a masculine feel. We also wanted the vibe to be FUN and for everyone to know how special they were to us, so we carefully mixed up our friends and family in the table settings so they could get to know each other, chose to sit at tables with our guests instead of on our own and picked pop music that everyone would know and dance to.
